its a spam bot, you need to make sure you are up to date and enable visual confirmation and set account activation to at least user!

I had FuntKlakow register on my board too, it registered on about 36,000 phpBB boards. As far as I've read it has done nothing worse than spam.

I deleted the account then added that name, along with a few other known bots to the disallow name list.
Also banned that email address incase it goes for a different name.

That should fix it I think?
